Basic Tips to Remember

As we know, traveling these days known as a lifestyle. All of people in the world love to travel. Sometimes a little things important could be forgotten, like period of validity of the passport.


Before you go, this is one of the listed that you need to check:

Travel Documents

Document that required to your travel is identity card, e-ticket, hotel voucher/hostel, bus/train ticket evidence, travel insurance, frequent flyer card, hotel membership, discount card and the most important thing is PASSPORT.

Most Indonesian citizens must use an Indonesian passport to travel overseas and reenter the Indonesian. A passport is an internationally recognized travel document that verifies your identity and citizenship. Only the Government of Indonesia has the authority to issue Indonesian passports.

Most foreign countries require a valid passport to enter and leave. Some countries may allow you to enter with only a birth certificate, or with a birth certificate and a driver’s license, but all persons, including Indonesian citizens, traveling by air, must present a valid passport to reenter the Indonesian.

If you are traveling by land or sea, you must provide evidence of both your Indonesian citizenship and your identity when you reenter the Indonesian. For many land or sea trips this means you can travel using the new Indonesian passport card instead of the normal passport book.

When does your passport expire? Some countries require that a traveler’s passport be valid for at least six months beyond the dates of the trip. Contact the embassy of your foreign destination for more information.

In addition, you can search for your destination to view more specific information about that country or area.

Scan your travel documents and email them to yourself. It was traditional to photocopy your passport and visas, travel insurance etc, and keep them in a separate part of your luggage. That’s old school. These days, digital is best – that way your documents won’t go missing even if your bags do.

Stash Extra Cash

For some people, they always forget where to save your wallet or your cash money is. To avoid your forgetful problems. Try not to replace your wallet repeatedly. Make sure prepare your cash money separately in case there’s no ATM in other countries. Cash is king around the world. To cover your ass in an emergency, make sure to stash some in a few different places. If you lose your wallet, your card stops working, or the ATM’s run out of money, you’ll be glad you did. Some of my favorite stash spots include socks, under shoe inserts, a toiletry bag, around the frame of a backpack, even sewn behind a patch on your bag.

I tend to prepare everything in the early beginning before the departure, at least one week before to go. How about your travel planning? Wait a few more travel tips in the next article.
